Nothing beats a quality getaway with the family. However, finding something to keep the kids entertained while mum and dad relax can be a challenge - but there are some amazing destinations that cater for children without having to sacrifice the luxury from your next vacation.
Not only is Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort one of the hottest new resorts in Oman, it’s nature’s playground for the youngsters. Set on the rim of a great canyon on the fabled Green Mountain, there’s countless adventures to be had. Under the guidance of qualified instructors, kids can abseil down into the rocky gorge to seek out abandoned villages and secret caves with a hiking trip, learn the ancient art of archery, explore the narrow roads via mountain bike, or go stargazing under a crystal-clear night sky.
At Anantara Hua Hin Resort, just a short drive south of Bangkok in Thailand, the kids will love Baan Pla Noi Children’s Club while the adults relax in the spa or by the pool. With different activities to get involved in every day, including candle making, pizza cooking, t-shirt batik designs, face painting and Thai language skills, they’ll have something to keep them entertained all day long.
Visitors to Sri Lanka are spoiled for choice. Just a short trip south of Colombo lies Anantara Kalutara Resort, where kids can join the Adventurer Club in exploring the unique surroundings with cultural activities and action-packed excursions, or can experience ultimate pampering at the spa with delicious chocolate oil massages or hair braiding. To the south of the island, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort has both a children’s and teens’ club, offering awesome activities like snooker, foosball and table tennis.
At Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal, the kids will never want to leave. Whether they’re enjoying the hotel’s outdoor playground, swimming pools, or beach, or experiencing local traditions and culture, they’re in for a holiday they’ll never forget. There’s also the Worldwide Kids Football Academy and Worldwide Kids Dance Academy for children up to 18 years old, with classes to improve their individual skills while having hours of fun. For younger guests, there’s even the Adventurers Crèche Club so mum and dad can enjoy some quality alone time.
For your next family vacation, why not spoil the kids while leaving the adults to relax with perfect peace of mind - the hardest part is choosing where in the world you’d rather explore with Anantara. No matter what age your youngsters are, they’re sure to experience a memory-packed adventure to remember.
